Palmdale Traffic Unit Conducts Traffic Operation to Combat Traffic Collision Rate...

On Wednesday, 02-17-2021, Palmdale Traffic conducted an operation regarding eastbound traffic issues on Avenue S during the evening commuting hours. 

The operation mainly targeted drivers who pass on the right, near the curb, between Cemetery Road and 25th St East as well as driver’s who drive over the painted median and westbound left turn lane in order to enter the eastbound left turn lane for 25th St East. 

During the operation 39 citations were issued, 1 warning was given, and two vehicles were impounded. 
We have received numerous complaints about these issues and have had several traffic collisions in this area due to these types of violations.  We have conducted enforcement in the area and seen firsthand the scope of the problem.  Therefore, it was decided to an operation to saturate the area would make a larger impact on the issue.
Please remember that it is unsafe and illegal to drive outside of a marked traffic lane in order to pass other vehicles, especially when it is done at a high rate of speed compared to the vehicles in the traffic lanes.  It is imperative that all drivers follow the traffic laws, as they were enacted to keep everyone safe as they travel on the roadways of California.
